I just ran a 5k in Edinburgh marathon!

It feels so good you'd think I've just ran the whole marathon! And I did it in 36.3 minutes which I think is impressive for a not- spring chicken-anymore like me!! And I raised nearly £200 for Scottish Association for Mental Health. Now the challenge is to keep running. Half an hour twice a week is my target so hope I keep going. I started Ct05 to keep healthy and decided to fund-raise to give me a focus to keep going. So, for those just starting out, planning a race might be a good source of motivation. Good luck and keep running! x
